Picture of the year

Last week I was awarded two prices in the Norwegian Picture of the Year competition. The competition is the only one of it sort here in Norway and many of the photographers in Norway participate. I won 3. place for best sport action photo and a price for my multimedia about Norwegian Ghost Hunters. You can also read about the award in VG.

picture of the week

This weeks picture of the week was taken after the wedding for Marte and Lennart in Gamle Aker Kirke in Oslo. The church is one of the oldest buildings in Oslo and I wanted to take a photo that was a bit “medieval”. They thought it was a good idea so I placed two old chairs near the stone wall and told them to look uncomfortable.
